In the dreary, cold, snow covered winter, you may dream of curling up next to a roaring fire with a light hearted mystery or dramatic romance. What I love to read during this time of year are funny books. Nothing lifts my mood, aside from sunshine and warm weather, than getting the uncontrollable giggles while reading — or listening — to a great book. Here are some autobiographies that will tickle your funny bone. (Note: David Sedaris’ books are funny but do contain some disturbing scenes.) I’ve included the audio and print versions of these book because some are hilarious to listen to. ~ Beth
